Looking for something to finish interior of cabin

Were working on building a new camp we would like to stay away from thin paneling due to moisture and it warping would like to have some type of material that has a smooth surface so if you brush against it its not rough and it would help keep it from collecting dust.

Re: Looking for something to finish interior of cabin

I used tongue & groove barn siding and used a wiping oil stain on it. Came out beautiful, easy to put up, knotty pine look, solid, and will last forever. It is smooth and your clothes won't snag on it. Otherwise, green drywall should be okay if you are worried about moisture.

Tongue and groove white pine. Don't use the clear # 1 grade, # 2 grade has some knots and more grain. Can run it vertical ( need furing strips) or horizontal. Water based Polyurethane on it, no smell, nice finish.

Also would agree with the pine t & g barn siding, I always use the #2 with knots also. Stain and poly and it turns out great. I've used it on walls and ceilings before

We used T&G 1x6 white pine, polyurethaned. Love it. Where in 2g are you?

Re: Looking for something to finish interior of cabin

My original camp is 21 years old and I finished with cheap paneling at time since it was all I could afford. 2 years ago I built on a 12x14 bedroom and shower, last Oct. I built on another 12x12 extra room. I don't keep heat in my place all winter and was told paneling would buckle with out heat unless you use the Luanne ( not sure of spelling ) and it did good. However these last 2 rooms I mentioned I just used regular drywall and painted. I had no issue going thru last years severe cold winter with out heat. Drywall is cheap and easy, I did most of my own finishing just from my old auto-body experience. As far as painting anyone can do it also. I kind of like something smooth painted surface is easy to clean.
